North Yorkshire Buy Local
As part of our efforts to support local businesses and communities during the Covid 19 outbreak, North Yorkshire County Council has set up a website called Buy Local www.northyorks.gov.uk/buy-local
It’s a platform to provide free advertising for businesses to connect them with customers, and vice versa. Our aim is to make it a useful resource for now and beyond the Covid 19 outbreak. There are over 500 businesses registered so far, from butchers and bakers, to electricians and solicitors!
Please can you can help us spread the word about Buy Local in your community?
We’d really appreciate it if you could:
· Print and display the attached poster prominently somewhere appropriate
· Share the poster on social media, and share our Buy Local posts – follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Linkedin @northyorkscc
· Spread the word in any other ways you can - via parish communications, community newsletters, your website or any other methods available to you.
We appreciate your help with publicising Buy Local, to support your local economy and help residents find services online now and in the future.

North Yorkshire Community Messaging
From Andy Fox who is the Financial Abuse Safeguarding Officer attached to the Economic Crime Unit at North Yorkshire Police.
"With the country placed into another lockdown I know many of you will be increasing your online shopping in the run up to Christmas.
Fraudsters are aware of this and I do expect to see a rise in online fraud over the next couple of months. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are now established retail events which will see North Yorkshire residents spend millions of pounds online.
North Yorkshire Police are hosting an online event in partnership with North Yorkshire Trading Standards which will be your opportunity to learn about the types of online shopping fraud currently operating, how to spot them and how to stay safe.
There will be an opportunity to ask questions to a panel of experts from North Yorkshire Police and North Yorkshire Trading Standards
This online event will be conducted over Microsoft Teams. Do not worry if you do not have Teams installed on your computer. All attendees will be sent a link and you will join the meeting through your web browser. Full details will be circulated to all those attending prior to the event.
This online event will take place on Wednesday 25th November 6:30pm – 8:30pm.
If you wish to attend please click on the link below.
I hope you are able to make it"
